The Oyster Boats, 1950's
I stumbled across some old color transparencies from the mid-1950's, which would have been just about the time I began High School. I was thrilled to find one photograph of these oyster boats. When I was a kid, there were oyster boats that operated in Long Island Sound and that were berthed in Milford, Connecticut. I was fascinated by these rust stained white wooden boats. On some days I would ride my bicycle down to the harbor after school, and at 3:30 every afternoon, the oyster boats would return to their docks across the harbor where they unloaded. I have kept my eyes open for any photographs I might have taken of these boats, but never found any - until today, that is, and I am thrilled to have this reminder of something from so long ago. I posted a larger file than normal - click on the picture to see the boats in more detail.
